Decks are very useful additions to homes and buildings. It provides a recreational place for you and your family as well as friends and loved ones. More than always, decks are situated at the back of homes because backyards offer a more tranquil area. This is beside the fact that you enjoy the privacy from the prying eyes of passersby. It is also for the fact that the front of your homes should always be neat and clean so as to embody the homey feeling you have for it. On top of these all, homes usually face east so the back is the best place for watching the sunset.
